How To Make Crispy Pasta Chips
Left over pasta works great to make pasta chips. I prefer bow tie (farfella) pasta to make chips as it looks very pretty and also crisp evenly when deep fried.
If you do not have left over pasta, quickly boil dried pasta from the packet and use. It only takes extra 4-5 minutes!
IMPORTANT : Make sure to dry the cooked pasta (either left over ones or freshly boiled ones) on couple of paper towels. You want to drain the pasta real good, so water doesn’t get spattering in the oil when deep fried.
In a small bowl combine all the seasoning you want to put it over pasta chips. I went with salt, ground pepper, cayenne, garlic powder seasoning and little Parmesan cheese on top to finish off.
I love to fry pasta in olive oil. Olive Pomace oil, extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil should work. Heat up oil in deep pan. Once oil is hot, deep-fry the pasta, till they turn golden brown in color.
Drain pasta from oil into large bowl. Season immediately. Toss well and serve.
While pasta chips are amazing on their own, we love it with some dipping sauce. Who could say no to extra deliciousness! Spicy marinara sauce, cheese-y Alfredo sauce are great combination for chips and dips!
What Seasoning Is Best For Pasta Chips?
Fried pasta seasoned with just salt – simple but amazing.
Salt and pepper seasoning – So good!
Salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder – extra boost of flavors with a kick!
Salt, garlic powder, ginger powder – Asian inspired seasoning. Don’t forget to sprinkle some sesame seeds here.
Salt, pepper, mixed dry herbs – Italian seasoning. Familiar flavors with pasta that always works.

Test small batch of cooked (well drained) pasta in deep frying pan. If you drained really well it should work just fine, pasta will fry good.
If you find pasta to stick together, toss cooked pasta in plain flour, and then deep fry, your pasta should crisp up beautifully.
